Sensory Appeal

The fourth assignment for Concept was to use texture to communicate "pain" or "pleasure." The first time around on this project I used stiletto heals for my "pain" portion. The heals themselves were incredibly shiny, black, and more or less screamed sex appeal. Sure, they might be uncomfortable to wear, but aesthetically they are very smooth and more in line with pleasure. A trip to a thrift store on 16th St in the Mission district found me my painful texture. Just thinking about putting that sweater on ever again makes my neck itch.
